Name That Trauma :: Reader M. Nelson on Miniature Monsters

Cannot remember the title and it is driving me crazy. Film is from the late ’70s or early ’80s.

Mad scientist figures out a way to bring the monsters of classic literature to life. He turns on the machine and out of the books come Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolfman and The Mummy, but they are only 3 feet tall. I recall this done as a serious horror movie with a bit of tongue-in-cheek humor thrown in. Help save my sanity please.

M. Nelson

UNK SEZ:: The year doesn’t match up but this sounds very much like the 1997 CHARLES BAND film THE CREEPS! Check out the trailer below M. Nelson and let us know! Meanwhile, does anybody out there in kindertraumaville know of any other movies that feature pint-sized classic monsters?

You’re definitely right on this one, Unk. Even though the year is wrong, every other detail matches up. “The Creeps” is one of my all-time favorites, for what it’s worth. I like to screen it for people who are completely unaware, and watch their faces when the three-foot monsters come striding out of the smoke.

And Phil Fondacaro is one of the best Draculas I’ve ever seen.
